Bloom Tender Discussion

Well, interesting question.
So theoretically, yes you could. Just by naming cards in your deck, Bloom Tender +any dork that taps for red+your commander in play is infinite colored mana (besides ).
With that being said, it's probably not too mana intensive, but I'm just a tad concerned about its consistency. But, if it's something you want to try out, by all means go for it!
Also, it gives infinite combat steps ;)

We've been playing something similar. Some ideas on how to make this deck more effective:
- Captain Sisay ; bit expensive card, but allows you to tutor for a lot of powerful stuff in your deck.
- Bloom Tender ; also a bit expensive card, but the mana from him is great.
- Greater Auramancy ; makes your gods even harder to remove.
- Enchantress's Presence / Mesa Enchantress : because you could use some extra draw.
- Heroes' Podium : superb boost for all your gods and is a filter to boot.
Have fun brewing/playing this.

I use Crucible of Worlds in my Tasigur list because he can't return lands with his ability, so it's a nice residual effect to keep getting land drops. In conjunction with Exploration the card is bonkers, and Life from the Loam fulfills a very similar role. Some cards you named, as well as others commented below are simply known as "Goodstuff" for good reason. They're just really good value cards to utilize and my Taigur list I mentioned is primarily a Combo Control build with a Goodstuff subtheme because high value cards that help me play magic more readily and increase my deck's longevity work really well in my meta.
Some of these types of cards that I've seen mentioned here are only really expensive because they haven't seen reprints. An example of this is Exquisite Blood . This card has only been printed once and was, for a time, much cheaper than where it stands right now. Sanguine Bond combos with Exquisite Blood , yet it costs less than a dollar because it's a card that has been reprinted five times. Cards like Oracle of Mul Daya or Bloom Tender would not be $40 cards if they had been printed more than once, but because they've only been printed in one set, that's why they're still so high up there and slowly but surely going to keep rising. I think Gaddock Teeg is a great example of this trend. For a time, I believe I saw him going for $35-$40, but when I saw that he was reprinted in Ultimate Masters, his price dropped to right around $7. His Lorwyn print still averages at ~$25, but if you actually look at what they are going for, you're actually looking at buying that exact print for $10.
I'm not sure if this was the intended discussion, but just seeing the suggested cards this looked like the perfect place to share this topic. The economics of the secondary card market is really interesting stuff.

hkhssweiss : Hi ! First thanks to look at my deck and took the time to write a comment ! :) I agree that Mayael is really go big, go wide and she is really really slow. I play it in a casual, quite slow, meta so it's ok and I prefer if she is not too fast.
I agree for more ramp (I don't know why I don't have Cultivate anymore). I think to include about Nature's Lore and Farseek because I can find non-basic land. I have also a maybe on Bloom Tender but my meta is heavy in creature removal and boardwipe so I need to try it first (but she is a bit expensive).
Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet are often auto-include and I'm using them for some tests. But most of the time Elvish Piper die to fastly and I prefered to stay focus on my gameplan to play creature from my library (that's why I tried to have almost no draws). Of course I agree that it's a suboptimal strategy, but my meta is slow enough and I often have the time to be able to hardcast my creature.
For Sneak Attack it's just I don't like to sacrifice my own creature... It's a really really a personnal choice but I'm thinking about giving her a try. Thanks for your comment and if you still like my decklist, you can put an upvote :)
majorappliance : Thanks for your comment and yeah, draw is for blue player anyway... I tried Abundance (work really really well with Sylvan Library ) but I thought it came to late. I never thought at Elfhame Sanctuary and honnestly, why not. Seems a really good idea. And it can help to shuffle the library when you don't like what you have on top... Thanks for the suggestions ! If you like my decklist, you can let a little upvote too :)

Heya Kizder, Mayael is a great commander and she can definitely be great as she is essentially a free card advantage engine.
However the biggest issue that I see in these kinds of deck is that they tend to push for more of the go big and wide strategy. The downfall to this type of deck style is that your deck CMC gets way too high, your hand gets cluttered with too many big drop creatures, and your curve won't work out smoothly.
I would suggest more ramp spells and more tutor cards to make it as efficient as possible. Cards like Search for Tomorrow , Nature's Lore , Farseek , Rampant Growth , and Three Visits are worth the slot to help you ramp. Mana dorks can be considered but if you want to not dilute the creature density than I would at least recommend running Bloom Tender as she does produce quite a bit of mana for small investment. Aside from the cheap low drops, the other value cards I would consider running would also be Cultivate as well as Kodama's Reach as they replace itself after ramping so that is more card advantage essentially.
Next part aside, is while you do have Scroll Rack and Sylvan Library that is not enough to manipulate your hand from having creatures stuck in it, you can also essentially use cards like Elvish Piper or Quicksilver Amulet to also cheat away your creatures from your hand. You can also do an interesting way with Sneak Attack as well.
Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any questions or reasonings~

As well as the importance of having multiple ways to win, in case one combo gets disrupted, or we draw it. You hone in on one combo, okay sure. how will you win if it gets stopped or you draw into the pieces? I considered Carpet of Flowers but it hinders on the fact your opponents have to have islands, but I guess a lot of competitive decks run blue, worth looking into, but not a creature, so you cannot start the chain off of it. Exploration was never a consideration of mine, and it still isn't because we need mana dorks I only run enough lands to see just enough per game. The Devoted Druid is actually decent. I legitimately considered this one when making cuts, but I feel it falls a little bit short of Bloom Tender and Priest of Titania but it is another card I may incorporate one day.

I never have seen the card Honored Hierarch before and looks like it works well within this deck since you want to attack with Tymna anyways. I do have a question though is see you run Bloom Tender but not Freed from the Real can I ask why you do not play it since you already play Bloom Tender ?
